Writer's Hill is off the beaten track, quiet, and very relaxing. The view of the mountains is great. The staff is very helpful. Ramji, the cook, dishes out delicious food, and the rooms are tastefully decorated. You can sit under the trees and have breakfast in the morning watching the sun rise from behind the mountains, and have dinner at night under the stars. The staff will set up a bon fire for you, if you like.
The rooms have a library, which has great books, along with a library of DVDs. The TVs and DVD players could be better, but you're not really going there to watch TV, right?
The drive from Delhi was very nice, except after Kala Amb, from where the roads weren't in great condition. All in all, a very relaxing, quiet holiday, that we'd love to repeat!
